Things to do in Rhodes

Hi,

I will be holidaying in Rhodes for a week or more in late September or October.

Any suggestions for things to do in Rhodes ?

Are there any other islands you can visit on a day trip from Rhodes ?

Regards

Gary

Hey and welcome Gary:-) There is loads to do on Rhodes..and you're giving it some ample time to take it in with a week+ (go for the '+';-) Although the bus system is pretty good, even better if you get yourselves a rental for the freedom/ease of getting around and arranging your days to your specs..some places are better serviced than others so no waiting around..Prasonissos is a good example..where the Med meets the Aegean! Loads of small villages throughout..Lindos of course..and FWIW, the Old Town alone can keep you well occupied for at least a couple of days at a minimum;-) As far as an isle visit..if you find the time..Symi is close enough;-) Am sure you'll get some great reccs here..read up in the Rhodes Forum here as well..loads of great advise! Happy New Year..Happy Planning and ENjOY!

Hi Gary

Plenty to do and see on Rhodes, and a week (or more) will give you the time to do it.

A few to add to Litsa's suggestions....

The Minoan site at Kameiros on the west coast

Ialyssos

Monolithos castle for amazing views along the southwest coast from a thousand feet up

Fourni beach for it's lovely setting and huge, balancing boulder

The village of Asklepio, inland from Kiotari on the southeast coast, with it's castle, museum and lovely church

Lardos old village with it's Italian fountain and another beautiful church

Tsambika monastery on the east coast, climb to the top for arguably the best views on the island

If you fancy driving into the rural interior of the island, there are many rustic villages, monasteries and a couple of wineries.
